EH is a whole different school than it had been a year or 2 ago. It is an IB Candidate school. Our teachers are great and meet each student at his/her level. Students are challenged academically and cared for emotionally, which they need at this age. They separate boys and girls at lunch. There are school clubs such as creating writing, book club, ski club, and yearbook. The band teacher is great, and if students are really good, they can play with Eastern's band (and in that case get DCYOP tuition FREE!). The principal has a vision for what her IB school should look like. The PTO is growing and active in grants writing and planning for the extras that make school special for students. Next year is the planning year for Phase 1 renovation. Everything is in place for this school to be all we want it to be.

The school is growing by leaps and bounds. Staff are working very hard to ensure all students continue to excel. The PTO has done an outstanding job of being advocates for the staff and students of Eliot-Hine.

The best thing is that the faculty is excellent. In particular, they are able to capture the interest and attention of middle school age children and keep them engaged in learning. Expectations for student achievement are high. The Principal is very responsive to parent and student concerns. The IB coordinator, guidance counselor, librarian, etc. are all committed to helping each student get the most out of his or her middle school experience. The in-school radio station is extremely cool and the skills practiced there are very relevant to future learning and job prospects. One area that could use improvement is financial; the programs would benefit from increased funding. However, there is a newly formed PTO that is energetically pursuing grant opportunities.

This school is Capitol Hills best kept secret....The staff, teachers and administrators truly care about every child in the building and it is evident by the work they have been doing. I believe educations starts at home and in conjunction with the school and my efforts I know my child will succeed.

This school is in need of Kaya Henderson's attention. The principal is nev3r around and leaves her staff uninformed in her absence. The teachers are great and do very well with the amount of authority given to them. The front office staff is the worst. I have ever seen. I deal with rwo other schools, elementary and hs and have nevrr had any issues with communication or interacting with the staff. They are very disrespectful and uninterested in the childrens wellbeing(again I'm speaking of front offi ce and select teachers). My child was marked absent on days that my child was present including a day that I was actually in the office to speak with the principal.Just one of many situations. I actually did not start to havev issues until I raised questions regarfing testing and scores.

My child went to this school and in her first year she got bullied to the point where she hated school and didn't wan't to show up but all of that changed around in her 7th grade teacher when she was giving a chance to get to know other students and staff. I have to say the principle and the vice principle at the time were splendid, I was never displeased with there actions or thoughts. Until my daughter's 8th grade year , I had found that both the vice principle and the principle had left the school and there was going to be a new principle. I rooted for her because most women don't get respected as the boss but as the year progressed on she made rash decisions and it was blatantly obvious that she had no clue of what she was doing. I'd get constant complaints from my child and not only that when I would actually see the changes the school has gone through it was aware to me that the school had lost much of it's discipline. The kids were not always in complete uniforms there would be children sneaking through side doors that they are not suppose to go through and the amount of fights has definitely maximized to a point where I watch 2 little girls get locked up. I don't recommend.

My son attended 6th grade at this school last year. Under the new leadership the school has improved drastically. We have to understand that discipline starts at home, and we can not judge the school based on what some students do. This school has above and beyond to assure the children get a good education. I would recommend it/

I am a 2010 gradute of eliot-hine middle school.I dont think the 2009-2010 school year went as good as if could've.it seems like some students in the school are running it.For example,some 8th graders worked hard to gradute.However,others never came to school or failed to complete assignments just graduated because they were easily passed.I wouldnt reccommend the school.But i would say Ms.brown and Mr.Tyner made my school year exiciting.

My daughter attends Eliott. She wants out! There are students there that are making it very difficult for other students learn in an effective manner. I understand that it is not entirely the children's fault. Some children act out accordingly to what they see and hear at home or from the lack of attention at home. I also have other relatives that go to this school. On occasions there have been some things that have happen wherein the parents should have been notified and they were not. Sweeping things under the rug while a child goes undisciplined for their actions will help that child respect his/her school environment.
